This is our third year of being a gallery and we love being part of the Yalding community. We made a decision to use August as our Community Matters exhibition space. This year we have Hadlow Pottery, Kenward Trust and Yalding Art Group exhibiting.
HADLOW POTTERY is a working pottery, giving work experience for adults with learning difficulties. All the pottery is produced in the Hadlow Studio and each pot is hand painted. The aim of the pottery is to help build confidence through the achievement of producing a quality item of pottery. www.hadlowpottery.org f: /hadlowpottery
KENWARD TRUST - transforming lives, creating new futures. Kenward recognises that overcoming substance dependency or addiction is but the beginning of a life-long recovery journey. A person who learns to live without alcohol or drugs still has many other formidable hurdles to jump and barriers to break down as they seek to put their lives together and re-integrate with their families and the wider community. This is what the charity Kenward Trust is there for. www.kenwardtrust.org.uk
YALDING ART GROUP was started by Anne Teller in 2001 and has gone from strength to strength bringing together artists from Yalding and the surrounding areas. They hold an Arts & Crafts Fair every May and this supports their annual art trip. This year, they held their art exhibition at the gallery and it has been a runaway success! www.yaldingartgroup.weebly.com
Our charity this year is Yalding Church Preservation Society - YCPS
